I’ve been having a blast with my new dehydrator. I’ve been making a lot of jerky, so I figured I’d take a break and make something different. And that different is raisins made on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro. They take a few days to dehydrate, but boy are they fantastic! Tender and sweet. Soooooo much better than store-bought.
Raisins on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro are fun to make and eat! You can fit about a pound of grapes per tray (outfitted with screens). You should rotate the trays every few hours to guarantee even drying, but be careful rotating the trays when you first start out. Them lil grapes like to roll around!
After 2 days the smaller grapes may be dried completely, so check through the trays for any that are done.
Did you know that you can also make Fig Newtons on your Nesco Snackmaster Pro? They take a while, but boy are they ever great!
Raisins on the Nesco Snackmaster Pro
- 1 pound ripe grapes
- Remove the stems from the grapes.
- Rinse under cold water.
- Pat the grapes dry. The drier, the better.
- Place grapes onto the dehydrator screens. Try to not let them touch.
- Close the dehydrator and turn onto high.
- Dehydrate on high for 24 hours, rotating the trays every 2 hours or so. Don't fret if you don't rotate the trays at night while you're sleeping!
- Turn the dehydrator down to 135 F and continue drying for a total of 3 days, rotating the trays every 2 hours or so. I like to move the grapes around a bit as they are drying to keep them from sticking to the screens.
